The past few weeks have been very busy and exciting for Beech class; this week was no different!
We started our swimming lessons on Monday and Thursday and were lucky enough to be the first class to try the pool!
In Literacy we have been writing some poems, inspired by the work, The Magic Box by Kit Wright. We have stretched our imaginations to the limit to think about what we could have in our own magic boxes. We used abstract nouns as well as concrete nouns to make them more powerful. Here are some extracts from some of the children’s poems:
I will put in my box:
The beastly fire from a Chinese dragon – Lockie
The heat wave from a flaming, exploding volcano – Noah
The hunger of a dinosaur trapped in the deepest and darkest cave for 100 years – Freya and Matilda
The love between a boy and girl – Sadie
A twinkle from the magical, shining sunrise – Thomas B-D
A drop of a melting snowman when the sun is shining – Charlie
We also thought about what the box could be made of:
My box is fashioned from a rare, golden and blue flower that’s so rare people would fight to the death to just hold it and admire it - Caitlin
Those are just a snapshot of all the fantastic ideas the children came up with!
In maths we have been learning about symmetry in shape and the children got very messy and had so much fun writing and painting their names symmetrically!
